Awesome haiku. Shuddering for rain.......has been a long time without at this side of the planet, but when it hits it will be ferocious.
Perfect haiku on rain ... the image you paint in this haiku is very nice, well done ...
That scent is also quite similar to the scent the earth brings out when the raindrops fall.
Very dry environment begging for rain, with scent of wildfires threatening!! This was our summer of 2011 in Texas ... we did much better this year.
I feel the shudder, see the cracks in the ground.
